    7/19/21 Update: Johnson appeared in court Monday for a motion hearing. His lawyers are claiming there was a coercive environment from law enforcement that led to the confession. But now, his defense attorneys are trying to throw that confession out ahead of the murder trial. Court documents for the motion to suppress say police gave Johnson 15 breaks to smoke, eat, drink, and go to the bathroom throughout the interrogation process. At Monday’s suppression hearing, detective, Lanis Geluso, testified on the stand. Geluso also went into specific details about what exactly Johnson told her that day he admitted to killing her. The hearing will continue on 8/4/21 on whether the confession will stay as evidence or not. A new trial date has not yet been set.

    Motion to suppress his confession has been denied. I'll keep an eye on this to see if there will be a hearing before trial in January.
